Meet Dr. J.


My name is J. Nikol Jackson-Beckham, Ph.D, but most folks in the brewing industry simply call me "Dr. J." 

I am a professor of communication studies, scholar, and writer and I have dedicated my career to the study of American beer. I have published social commentary, journal articles, and book chapters; delivered keynote addresses and guest lectures; and provided expertise as a guest on radio shows, podcasts, and in news and entertainment media on the culture and inclusiveness of craft beer.

As an equity and inclusion strategist, I provide consulting and training to individuals and organizations in the craft brewing industry. I want to help craft breweries and affiliated organizations develop and implement inclusive, equitable, and just practices that align with their visions of organizational success.
